Local Councils are getting out of hand. Rates are increasing across our state to fund vanity projects and bloated councillor salaries and perks while the struggling ratepayer finds it difficult to make ends meet.
To help people recover, the NSW Liberal Democrats believe:
- Council Rates should be frozen and reduced to help bring rent relief to individuals and businesses trying to recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
- Councillors should have their salary and perks frozen until spending is under control.
The NSW Liberal Democrats believe that Local Councils should be about the four R’s: Roads, Rubbish and Reducing Rates.
